Abstract

The fact that the lines, forms, colors, and textures of our aesthetic landscape have affec-tive and dispositional consequences in us constitutes one of the most prominent tenets supported by the chapters of this volume. This may have been a quite obvious statement for a sensitive architect—such as Oscar Niemeyer—but it is rather challenging for most contemporary psychological approaches. Our contemporary psychology builds its understanding of psychological phenomena on the General Linear Model—emphasizing the linearity rather tan curvilinearity in the data—while phenomena of psychology, similarly to those of biological nature, are non-linear. This is a major epistemological problem for psychology as science.
